Mormon Tabernacle Organ - Hallowed Ground Sacred Journeys
I am grateful the opportunities I have had in my life to hear the Tabernacle Organ. I remember family trips to Salt Lake City which usually included a visit to Temple Square. It was impressive to hear the demonstrations of the organ on tours of the Tabernacle. As an adult I got to attend a Christmas Concert in the Tabernacle. It was only a year or two ago that I learned that one of my great great grandfathers on my mother's side had provided wood for the organ pipes. Now when I hear the Tabernacle organ it takes on a more personal meaning. I am grateful for those who worked to make such a beautiful instrument and to bring such wonderful music into the world.
